Brother Dear went for a walk in the Big Field last night and checked on our home bee yard, where we left a few hives for the winter. Those Carniolan queens and their daughters are tough gals. You’ve got to be a tough gal to winter near Babb!


As Brother Dear noted upon observation of the hive, “it’s aliiiiiiive!” And hopefully enjoying its view of mighty Chief Mountain while it waits for honey season.

Ah, spring. We’re so glad you’ve come again.
